Really good, freshly prepared Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food. Excellent value and friendly service. Lots of vegetarian options. You have to try a soup, so satisfying and tasty. It is near the University of Chicago. No alcohol sold but you can take yours.

You won't find Jordanians eating Mensef with their bare hands here, but it is a lovely place to get your dip on. Kebabs are always tender and juicy, and surprisingly, the salmon kabobs are really good.

Good food at a good price! Excellent service as well! We were on business and it was a great place to go and relax. Not that kid friendly.
